...but let's not worry too much. They do the same to everyone else. It's hardly the pinnacle of music journalism, but we thought we'd share this article with you:

http://entertainment.uk.msn.com/music/features/article.aspx?cp-documentid=12018683>1=61501

"But all that pales when compared to the absurd rebirth of Queen (+ Paul "you know, the one who was in Free and Bad Company and sang that song All Right Now" Rogers). A band whose reputation was always disproportionate to their actual abilities, even when the only interesting member was still alive and the most talented member could still bear to play bass in their presence, were now a band who had the audacity to follow up the worst musical ever written (one day we'll topple that statue of Freddie in Tottenham Court Rd, just like they did Saddam) with a new album under the name Queen + Paul "who was also in The Firm but we can't remember any of their hits" Rogers, entitled The Cosmos Rocks (oh good grief!).

"Queen + Paul "why didn't they just get George Michael to do it again because at least he can hit the high notes without sounding like he's straining out a poo" Rogers also released a single called C-lebrity (oh good grief!), damning our obsession with reality TV stars (oh good grief!) that was stuffed full of lyrical conceits as clumsy as a giant picking up pins, and sounded as joyless and stilted as a Gordon Brown-hosted Xmas party. They did not rock us."

This is like totally unfair !
Let Queen + Paul Rodgers do want they want to do !
George Michael would be a very bad idea !

I'm no fan of the whole Q+PR idea, but that was a bit harsh!

You get the impression are that they're as bad as they ever were.

The worst thing is that they misspelled Rodgers

Who the fuck is he to berate all the music that comes out these days. Who IS he, seriously.

He sounds like an old fart who seriously needs to get laid.

I wouldn't. I'm no fan of the new collaboration, I'm just saying, it's okay to make an editorial mistake, but if you're going to insult a man, spell his name right!

That was an awful review indeed.  Personally, I think "The Cosmos Rocks" is a good album.  It's of course no where near the brilliance of A Night at the Opera or Bad Company (debut), but it certainly rocks the hell out of my Zune headphones.  One of the things that saves the album (to me) is that no two songs are too similar.  There's some diversity, as with Queen's entire career.

Obviously, the review is terrible. But this guy clearly didn't either like, nor understand the original Queen, so what chance do their recent ventures with Paul Rodgers have? I sometimes think that, if critics actually knew anything about music, they'd be doing it, not writing about it.

What a give away ......'Paul "who was also in The Firm but we can't remember any of their hits" Rogers'.... judging a band by how many hits they've had or not is pathetic, there are so many more deserving cases to knock in pop and rock music today, Q+PR are such an easy target for smeg heads like this.

I'm not crazy about Cosmos rocks or the band using the name 'Queen' but the live show was great, I think Q+PR will listen to what the fans say and the next cd will be miles better.

ust let them come to the States so we could see them live.  Raise your hand if you've never seen Queen live.......let them play and tour, little girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They will always be one of the most influential bands ever, and Fred wouldn't have san The Show Must Go On" if he didn't mean it....maybe he did foresee something like this, who knows.....


Hello Queen!!!

Although I don't agree with a word this guy has said, and think it's just over-opinionated crap from someone who has developed major issues over the years, at least he is saying he didn't like Queen much in the first place.  I suppose that's better than all the other reviews I've read which have had critics praising Queen in the Freddie years but who probably, at the time, slagged them off more than anyone.
  I've listened to The Cosmos Rocks  quite a bit now and I'm definately glad they made it. I have ommitted a couple of songs from my MP3 player, but I've done that with every Queen album.  There are enough good ones on it to make it more than worthwhile.
